Oliver Stone and Paramount Pictures are re-teaming for "Jawbreaker", a film that focused on America's response to the terrorist attacks with the invasion of Afghanistan and hunt for 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden reports Variety.

Cyrus Nowrasteh ("The Path to 9/11") is set to write a second draft of the script which is based in part on a memoir of the same name by Gary Bernsten, the CIA's pointman during the invasion.

Stone and Par bought the book months ago and kept it hush-hush so that "World Trade Center" could open unencumbered in the U.S. and overseas. A first draft was written by Ralph Pezzullo.

Stone cautions that "Jawbreaker" is one of several projects he has percolating and he hasn't locked his next film.
